of the jackpot areas. you could see some of the highest totals. up to new york city now gets reports of snow mixing with the rain. even reports of sleet. lots of areas outside new york city are going to get significant snow out of this. breaking out over much of coastal connecticut. so how much snow are we talking about? the possibility of three to six inches. if not a little more to the east side of philly. even new york city outside the city could see up to four inches. and the other big impact is going to be the winds. they're already gusting 40 to 50. and the peak of the storm up to 70 miles an hour. a lot of people are going to lose power in this region after they just got it back on from sandy. >> and certain people still don't have it. this is insult to injury. bill kairns, thank you. >>> coming up next, the grand outdated party? a new acronym for the gop. i'm joined in the spin room to talk about that. keep it locked into msnbc, the place for politics. one. two. three. my credit card rewards are easy to remember. with the bankamericard cash rewards credit card, i earn 1% cash back ev
this neighborhood where i am here in lower manhattan and new york city. once again we're talking about storm surges. as a matter of fact, there are almost no restaurants open down here. when i was walking down to the exchange, it was starting to snow a little bit. the wind is picking up because another nor'easter ishitting the area right now. meteorologist todd gross is tracking this storm. >> this won't be as bad as last week but the snow is a big wild card as i've been telling you for the past couple of days. it is just pushing in right now. you can see it from boston down through new york city to philadelphia. mostly snow, just inland from the coast and mostly rain right on the shorelines. several problem spots. first of all, just south of boston. not only very windy but a big storm surge coming in there later this afternoon. and again at high tide later tonight. also out on the eastern tip of cape cod, out towards nantucket, winds already to 55 miles an hour likely to gust to 60. so some damaging winds there. then there's that new york city vicinity area in terms of the snow. it's a big wild ca
. it's a wide area. it's snowing from massachusetts into connecticut and areas north of new york city. moderate snow is falling in parts of new jersey. it looks like the moisture cranked inland. we could have the moisture make it to the metro area. not a lot of it. not much in the way of problems for us. here in northeastern maryland there could be as well as northern delaware. the philadelphia area could get quite a bit of snow out of it. we'll keep you informed about that in the afternoon hours. doug and veronica will be here. we'll have special updates to watch the progress of the storm. the temperatures are well above freezing. low to mid-40s. the road temperatures right now around 40 degrees, so that is really a mitigating factor for precipitation that falls. a winter weather advisory for northeastern maryland. a winter storm warning for northern delaware, new jersey and philadelphia where they could get four, five, six inches of wet snow later today. for us, i don't think it's going to happen. hour-by-hour, might have a few flakes falling by 2:00. late afternoon and the evening
new york city, long island, up towards new england. some snow totals are quite impressive. one of our computer models indicating over six inches in some of these spots. impacts heading into the overnight, rain heavy at times. some will mix along the coastline. we could see freezing rain, sleet. it will be a nasty ride home, a nasty commute ride home. winds up to 65 miles an hour. heavy know in the interior mountains. we'll have to head in the forecast next several hours. it is now casting instead of forecasting. look at eight inches for trenton, new jersey. five inches for new york city. up towards connecticut, 4 1/2 inches. this is one of our computer models did. we could see impressive snow totals for this time of year. winter weather advisories up along the coast battered by hurricane sandy up towards new england. unfortunately this is bad situation. if it was run of i will in northeaster without sandy yeah we could deal with it. we dealt with it with it before. everything is fragile. including people without homes, people without power. temperatures below freezing tonight. that is
warning. expecting five inches of snow. i expect the airports later today from philadelphia to new york city, especially think afternoon to probably be closed. they already have hundreds of flights canceled in those areas. so a lot of people that live along the coast in new jersey and also through central jersey and southern new england, be prepared. you're going to go to work today. it will be just fine. when people come home, it will be heavy wet snow, sleet, and strong winds. it's not a fun day to be traveling anywhere in this region that is devastated by sandy. >> you look at the path of that thing, there are people still digging throughout rubble of their homes that are in front of that. keep an eye on that for us, bill. coming up, president obama all but sweeps the battleground states with only florida still left undecided. we'll have a live report from nbc's kelly o'donnell in ohio. the state everybody was watching last night. a special edition of "way too early" back to 30 rock in a moment. >>> well, it's 5:41 in the morning on east coast. we have a call that's just come into us
the snow is, up between philadelphia, new york city. they're seeing heavy bands of snow through portions of jersey, including along the coast. areas that are hard hit by sandy are seeing snow. that is not good news for them. a live shot towards trenton, new jersey. this is a little bit earlier this afternoon. as the snow was falling, the snow continues to fall there right now. we'll continue to see that snow piling up in that region. they could see two to four, maybe five inches of snow before it's all said and done for them. unfortunately that could mean more power outages. for us, 45 degrees, winds out of the north at 16 miles per hour. cloudy skies with rain moving in. temperatures are on the cold side. look at these windchills, sitting at 35 in gaithersburg, 38 at the airport and 37 in manassas. once again, this will not be a big event for us. i'll come back and tell you what the big event will be, though, in just a minute. >>> a live look at reagan national airport where a number of flights heading north have been canceled already. united airlines suspended most of its service this
beginning to pick up, gusting now to new york city at 32. at the peak of the storm, we expect wind gusts anywhere from 50 to 70 miles per hour. that will be this afternoon into early this evening, especially over long island and coastal sections of new jersey. a lot of people just got their power back on. now we'll have additional power outages on top of that. we'll even get snow with this storm. some areas that haven't seen any snow. the snowfall amounts very impressive, especially northern portions of delaware around the philadelphia area and especially new jersey. the same locations that had the devastation and you saw the destruction of their homes, now we're looking at getting a coating of a couple inches of snow on top of damaged property. not what anyone needed in this will het through the inner mountain west and northern rockies with a snowstorm in the days ahead. >>> lynn, the west has enjoyed beautiful weather as of late. that all changes. a little flip of our weather pattern over the next couple days. >> we'll check back with you in just a little bit. >>> coming up, the world

-finance improvements. we have found where new york city did accomplish that, but it's on a much grander scale. so if there is the possibility perhaps to bundle properties, that might get us enough heft of what we want in debt, and perhaps get a decent return but for small agreements it's very difficult to do anything other than what we're presenting to you at this 8% rate. we are -- i do want to make mention though that our rough order of magnitude budget at this point has us considerably below what our availability of funds is at 35 a square foot, we're probably 80% of that and we're seeing already value engineering opportunities where that number will only go lower. but in abundance of caution we're providing you numbers that assume full amortization of the entire 35 a square foot. >> president chiu: supervisor campos. >> supervisor campos: thank you, mr. president. thank you for your presentation. just a quick question, just an informational question. there is a way to keep track of how much the city is spending on these kinds of improvements, collectively? i don't know how many of these deals
